A loan of $925 helped buy fish at wholesale prices.

Magali's story

Magdali is 27 years old, married, and lives in her father-in-law's house with her husband and three children. She is responsible for looking after her father-in-law as well as selling fish, a job that she learned from her father-in-law when he became too old to run the business. She is now in charge of the business. Thanks to support from her father-in-law and her whole family, she has been able to get ahead and increase income. With savings from selling fish, Magdali was able to buy a motorbike taxi which is now an important part of her business. It enables her to deliver the fish that her customers have ordered.

This is Magdali's first loan with Kiva and she is very grateful for this financial assistance. It will give her the capital she needs to improve her business and increase sales. She plans to use the S/.2500.00 to buy fish at wholesale prices.
